TIMECLOCK CHANGES ARE COMING
Providence has stated that RNs will be required to clock in and out for all lunch breaks and that the current 15-minute rounding will be eliminated.
We have sent a demand to bargain as this directly affects your hours and working conditions.
Your current contract expires in March 2024. You’ll soon be receiving a WSNA Negotiation Survey to your personal email on file. We encourage every nurse to fill this out and tell us what matters to YOU in this upcoming contract.
HAVE YOU BEEN DISCIPLINED?
Management has threatened to discipline and terminate employees for failing to complete education we didn’t bargain for.
We disagree with this process and have said so to HR. If you have been disciplined recently, please reach out to your nurse rep Alle Machorro.
We have TWO active Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs)- one for nurses who pick up unfilled incentive shifts (expires 10/31/23). The other is for nurses who accept a temporary full- time assignment for either 6 or 12 weeks on night shift for a lump sum money.
Management often tells nurses “We can’t offer raises or incentives due to the contract or due to WSNA”.
While wages, hours, and working conditions do need to be bargained, Providence St. Luke’s can ALWAYS reach out to us to offer better wages, raises, and incentives. The contract is the bare minimum they are held to, they can choose to do more for you and have not.
Nick McMicheals RN recently joined WSNA as a member and serves on your Nurse Staffing Committee. He is an amazing advocate for nurses and recognizes how important the collective voice of nurses is through WSNA!

If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.
By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.
WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.
As a union member, you have the right to have a representative present in any meetings with management that could potentially lead to disciplinary action against you.
If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.
Find out more about this crucial right and how to exercise it to ensure your fair treatment and protection.
